Labor Express For 2-4-13


Published February 4, 2013


This is the full 2-4-13 episode of the Labor Express Radio program.

Last week, both the US Senate and President Obama put forward proposals for long awaited, so called, comprehensive immigration reform. And here in Illinois, a new law was enacted allowing undocumented immigrants to obtain a drivers license.  One of the greatest disappointments of many with Obama’s first term, was his broken promise to tackle the immigration issue.  The outcome of the November elections, in which the Latino vote played a major role, has forced the issue back on to the front burner.  This has convinced many undocumented immigrants and activist in the immigrant’s rights movement that a change is going to come.  But is that really likely?  And will the change be for the better?  On today’s program I will air part 1 of an interview with Oscar Chacon, Executive Director of the National Alliance of Latin American & Caribbean Communities (NALACC).  In this interview Oscar talks about all the challenges that continue to exist to passing real comprehensive immigration reform, the limitations of what has been proposed so far, and provides a bit of history of the past 50 years of immigration policy in the United States that has created the current crisis.

To listen to part 2 of this interview, you can go to the 2-18-13 episode of Labor Express Radio...
